I scanned a G04 that I burnt about two months ago. No degradation that I can tell - but I was wondering what you thought of the rise in PIE levels and the slight cluster of PIF’s at the very end of the disc. Given the grave reports I have heard about G04 and G05 degrading, I was wondering whether the disc could be slowly degrading from the outer edge, as I am almost certain the rise in PIE and slight cluster of PIF’s were not there when I burned it. I have checked the disc thoroughly, and there are no specks of dust or any contamination on the recording side of the disc.
This was scanned in a NEC 3540A
